Brentano Gives back to Chicago Community with Artistic Donation
Event Proceeds Benefit HIV and AIDS Organization

Chicago House Champagne Wrapture
Brentano participated in the 8th Annual Champagne Wrapture event on Dec. 16, 2009.
Brentano once again participated in a charity event sponsored by Chicago House, an organization whose mission is to "provide housing and hope to individuals and families living with HIV and AIDS."

The event, which took place on December 16th, 2009, was the organization's 8th Annual Champagne Wrapture. It asks Chicago's top designers to create pieces inspired by their sponsor Veuve Clicquot's champagne bottles. Over 250 guests gathered at Hotel Sax for a champagne reception and to bid on the donations.

Brentano Design Director Iris Wang contributed a beautiful 84"x60" tablecloth made from a Brentano fabric in a stunning geometric pattern. Included in their donation was a set of 4 Waterford Crystal champagne flutes.

All proceeds from the event benefited Chicago House. Since 1985, Chicago House has been providing numerous programs such as housing, prevention services like rapid HIV testing, and an employment program for people living with HIV and AIDS.
